What is Ozurdex?
Ozurdex contains the prescription medicine dexamethasone, which is classed as a steroid. Ozurdex comes as a tiny implant, which is injected into your eye. The implant will slowly release dexamethasone into your eye over a period of time. Ozurdex is used to treat or prevent inflammation caused by disease, injury, eye surgery, or blocked blood vessels. It works by targeting certain cells involved in the inflammation process to free your eyes from the inflammation.
Ozurdex will be injected into your eye by a healthcare professional. You will be given medicine to numb your eye before the injection. Ozurdex will dissolve into your eye when injected and you will be closely watched for signs of any inflammation, swelling, or increase in pressure in your eye.
